Chris Rock is preparing to step behind the camera again to direct Kevin Hart in a new film.
An upcoming movie will boast two big comedians on either side of the camera, with Chris Rock directing and Kevin Hart starring.
According to Deadline, Rock is in negotiations to direct Hart in a film titled Co-Parenting, which is written by Black-ish’s Yamara Taylor and will be produced by Will Packer.
The movie is based on an idea by Rock and Hart, and follows “a stay at home dad who raises the kids while his star CEO wife serves as the breadwinner. The man finds himself in emotional and public turmoil when his wife kicks him to the curb, and they engage in a bitter divorce and custody battle.”
Packer and Hart previously worked together on Think Like a Man and Ride Along franchises. Their most recent project is the movie Night School, which premiered in September. Meanwhile, Rock released his most recent stand-up special on Netflix earlier this year and will also star in the upcoming fourth season of FX’s Fargo.
Rock, the veteran comedian, former Oscar host and actor, made his directorial debut on Top Five in 2014.
Hart and his production banner HartBeat Productions recently inked a first-look deal with Nickelodeon. Hart and Rock also have first-look deals with Universal Studios to produce feature films.
